The Raptors haven’t had that much better of a season than the Pacers, only being a few games ahead in the Eastern Conference. Ahead of the trade deadline, there were all kinds of rumors flying around that the Raptors might want to tear down the whole team and start again.
The Pacers are coming off of a tough loss to the lowly Charlotte Hornets as we continue to struggle through injuries.
Multiple Pacers players were able to return from injury, with Bennedict Mathurin being the headliner, but other important Pacers players like Chris Duarte and Tyrese Haliburton continued to be absent from the lineup.
The question is, will Tyrese Haliburton be on the court and playing against the Toronto Raptors with the Indiana Pacers on March 22nd?
It looks like Haliburton is more likely to be out on the court against the Raptors than he has been in previous contests this week, finally being upgraded to questionable from out. So there is a chance that we see Haliburton tonight. However, the Pacers are also likely to be very cautious with their budding superstar and so it wouldn’t be surprising if they continue to hold Haliburton out of the game.
- Chris Duarte, questionable, ankle injury
- Tyrese Haliburton, questionable, right ankle sprain
- Kendall Brown, out, shin surgery recovery
- Trevelin Queen, out, G League
- Dalano Banton, out, left thumb sprain
- Scottie Barnes, questionable, left wrist soreness
- Otto Porter Jr., out, left foot surgery
